Back Faru is located northeast of Farukolhu Fushi (previously known as Club Med) on the outside reef, one hour sailing from Male. The site is an easy dive and also good for snorkelers. The reef top is very shallow and slopes gradually into the ocean. Large coral blocks are scattered around on the reef and we often find nurse sharks resting beneath. Large tuna and other ocean going fish are commonly seen passing in the blue. Keep the reef on your left shoulder and swim back to the channel entrance. With an incoming current, white tip reef sharks can be seen patrolling here, and we have also encountered blue marlin swimming, as well as barracuda and rays. Float in to the channel and explore the overhangs and small caves. About 150 meters into the channel there is an interesting area with big parts broken off the reef with a lot of smaller fish and soft coral.
